Speed Up Chrome For Android With This Simple Tip

I’m using Chrome for both my desktop and mobile usage. I have been using them every since they were launched. Because of only one reason – “Google“. I really loved the way this browser is connected with Google products. I have a personal Chrome account, where I keep important bookmarks and history details. I do the same for desktop and mobile. But for the past few months I have been using “Chrome for Android” more than “Chrome for Desktop”, I’m carrying my phone all the time and using it to browse the web often.

Fortunately I came across an interesting Reddit thread where an user shared a simple tip to improve the performance. Don’t worry, it is not rocket science, I’ll explain them below with a screenshot.
